Words for a Wednesday
This blog was an email that I sent out to my Beachbody family, friends and fitness enthusiasts yesterday.
These two quotes stuck with me so, that after reading them this weekend I felt compelled to share with that community of people…and now with you all.
Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments…
“When we are happy, we spread happiness; and when we are in pain, we spread suffering.”
Is this true for you?
I am hoping that you all are HAPPY – spreading and sharing that happiness in the world. But the truth is that many of us are in pain; and if this is you for one reason or another, my prayer today for you is for strength, faith and hope that you discover a support system so amazing that it eases or even dissipates your pain.
The other truth is simply that healthier people ARE happier people. It has been proven in study after study. When we are healthier we feel better about ourselves, our relationships improve, we smile more, we are more confident AND we want to share this feeling with others.
This is what I want for each of you!
Beachbody programs and feeding my body what it needs (physically, mentally and spiritually) have been what works for me over the past 5 years. I think that the only Beachbody program that I have not completed may be Rockin’ Body. I have spent countless hours on nutrition courses and continue to do so with such passion for sharing that knowledge with anyone and everyone who is interested or asks the questions. And lately, I have spent even more time on personal development, yoga and my spiritual journey which has been eye-opening and life changing.
“Let go of habits of distraction and develop the habit of concentration.”
What is going on in your life RIGHT NOW that is throwing you off course? What is distracting you from reaching your goals? What is getting in your way of being the BEST you? A healthier you? A happier you?
Define it. Change your habit. Get rid of distraction. Develop concentration.
Words for a Wednesday…..
Good morning Lindsey! What an awesome post! You are definitely an inspiration! How do you find the time to do all that you do? If I lived near you I would love to hang out so I could learn how to be healthier. I do ok but I would like to be around others that are working hard at a healthy lifestyle.
Have a Blessed Day!
Michelle, Thank you for your kind words. It is the comments and interactions from people like yourself that inspire me 🙂
Funny that you mention “all the things I do,” as one of my goals this year is to simplify; work hard but not work more.
I do love to write and share thoughts, so I will continue to blog until one day it turns into a book.
Surrounding yourself with people who lift you up and inspire you is essential – from near or far.
Hi Lindsey! I was wondering is this the best way to contact you? Also what’s been your inspiration to motivate you to be healthy? My personal thing has been I know what I used to be and the health problems my parents have and I don’t want to be like that. Also does your husband and daughter eat healthy like you? On the 21 day fix they want you to pack your food and I don’t think I have a problem with food. Plus my husband and I share lunch. I just try to eat the healthiest part. So that’s a difficult part. Anyways just wondering. Ok have a blessed day! Mic
Michelle – I apologize for just seeing this comment :)The best way to contact me is via email – Lindsey@FitEnvyNC.com
I would love to connect and talk some more.
To answer your question about what inspires me…initially it came from my family. My mom has always been into healthy cooking and being active.She role modeled that for my brothers and me as we were growing up.
I was an athlete through my high school years and realized as I progressed what a difference it makes and how much BETTER I would have been if I had a good exercise and nutrition plan! More recently, it comes from reading and studying A LOT and my personal journey over the past few years with nutrition and my body’s capacity to heal itself from some issues I was having.
In general, it is people just like yourself. I love connecting with people and seeing them light up when they realize how much better they feel when they actually take care of their bodies through a good wellness plan.
And, does my family eat like I do? Not AS WELL 🙂 but they do eat very healthy and my kids make good choices most of the time!
Thanks for reaching out! Contact me anytime.
